Thinking about replacing my 42" Sony LCD projection set that is a few years old now.


I'm looking at Sony and Samsung for the most part. Sony's V4100, and Samsung's A550.


I hear a lot of negative things about 120mhz. Mainly the noise and other things it creates. So I would sort of like to stay away from it if possible. Is that a bad idea? This tv will be used for games first, bluray movies second, and tv third.

The 120hz does not hurt anything. No need to stay away from it. Just turn the motion processing off if you get a 120hz set.


If you are a heavy gamer the Sony is the better way to go. Samsungs tend to have a bit more input lag than most. The Sonys are generally very low in terms of input lag and make great gaming sets. The 5 series for Samsung is not horrible though, it is about average for input lag (the 6 series and up are bad though). The Sony would definitely be lower though.

Thanks for that advice. That is exactly why I posted this thread. I figured I'd get some insights like that.



I was wondering though, why would I want to buy a 120mhz tv, and then turn it off? Wouldn't I just be better off buying the tv without that feature?

Your not actually turning OFF 120Hz as you can't --- your turning off the Motion Processing as they are two separate features. Please see answers from another thread by another member:

This has been bothering me for the past bit of time, and I would be super happy to nip it in the butt, once and for all. I'll probably email samsung tech support sometime soon as well, just for good measure. Thanks in advance for your time/help

Pick any 120Hz LCD review of your choice (Xbr8,xbr4,w4100,A950,A750 to name a few) and you will see explicit text that talks about not only 120Hz framerates but also 5:5 pulldown

totally agree - Sony 46V4100 or other Sony with 120hz best for gaming. http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Bravia-KDL-46V4100-46-Inch-1080p/dp/B0017Q8B6G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=audio-video&qid=1231921244&sr=1-1


if your budget not allow then Sammy is the second option.
